Robust Connections

  Rutronik

Smart manufacturing ("Industry 4.0") is based, like the Internet of Things, on connectivity – and that means contacts. The connectors needed for the purpose must be of sufficient robustness for industrial use. So Industry 4.0 is not just a driver of growth, but also of technological progress, delivering a multitude of innovations. They are also benefiting other sectors.

Determining Capacitance Values Correctly

  Rutronik

Multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) are reaching the market with ever-greater capacitance values without increasing in size. Unpleasant side effect: It is becoming more and more difficult to measure the correct capacitance value. The values determined by users are frequently too low, which regularly results in significant extra expenditure. However, this situation could easily be avoided if certain...

CURRENT SENSING MADE EASY - MLX91210 - Integrated, Calibrated and Compact

  Suppliers

For low to medium currents engineers have typically achieved the current sensing function with shunt resistors or current transformers. Shunt resistors require an additional amplifier making this a multi-component solution and due to the sensing principle of generating an intended voltage drop over a few milliohms series resistor, this results in relatively high thermal losses. For high accuracy either more...
